Los Angeles - Sarah Ferguson is moving permanently to Los Angeles.

The ex wife of Britain's Prince Andrew has told friends she is sick of how she is portrayed in Britain and is hoping for a fresh start in America, where she believes she isn't judged for her past transgressions, including her attempt to sell access to her former spouse for cash.

A source told BANG Showbiz: "Sarah is moving to Los Angeles in the middle of next month, she's still finalising everything but expects to be here by the 16 or 17 of October.

"Her profile is much bigger in the US than it is in Britain, especially after making a reality TV show with Oprah Winfrey and Sarah feels people are kinder to her and accept her for who she is in the US much more easily than they do in the UK."

Fresh start

Sarah is still close to her former husband, with whom she has two children, Princesses Beatrice, 23, and Eugenie, 21, and lives with him at his official residence Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park.

The duchess first considered moving away from Britain permanently last year after it was revealed she was filmed accepting a bribe in return for access to Andrew.

Her friend Rob Shuter said at the time: "I think she'd love to stay in America and start afresh.

"She knows she's made a terrible mistake, and she knows she'll have to carry this with her for the rest of her life. She is terribly sorry."
